The Barony of Endewearde’s Sunday combat practice has moved to Dedham for Sunday, August 2, 2015.

There will be an Adult Fighter & Fencer Practice at the home of Lord William of Wyndhaven in Dedham, Maine. Loaner fighter gear will be available. An official thrown weapons practice will run if a thrown weapons marshal is available. A garbed potluck dinner will follow combat practice. This gathering starts at 4:00 pm and runs until 9:00 pm. If the weather is uncooperative that day and it rains, the focus will shift to the Pennsic Pity Party and will be held indoors. The firepit will be lit and the grill will be ready to cook.

Adult Fighter & Fencer practice will not be held at the Bangor Housing Authority site that day. Lord William’s home is located at 3 Anderson Way, Dedham, Maine, 04429. It is just beyond the Bald Mt access. The road is actually Johnson Rd and the lane to William’s home is Anderson Way.

Additional information and driving directions are available through the Sunday, August 2nd entry on Endewearde’s Master Calendar.

Please wear garb to this SCA gathering.
